“The tradition of coffee production has been in the Barbosa family since the twentieth century. Mr Barbosa’s ancestors, his great-grandparent Elias Barbosa, passed it on to his grandparent Claudio Barbosa de Paula and from him to his father, Jairo Barbosa de Paula and now Mr. Barbosa works with his generation, his sons Vítor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo. When I say family business, I mean husband, wife, father, son, and daughter in law all working together, so the office is like a big home where everybody shares the same dream, supporting each other, learning and growing together. The office is located in Carmo do Paranaíba, Estate of Minas Gerais, where the team is composed of ten people, cooperating to deliver the best coffee.”
“Danilo is the owner and manager; his first harvest was in 79/80 crops. The success led him to develop the activity and growth of the explored area, acquirement of new farms and introduction of new harvest technologies. Nowadays the producer has 490 hectares of coffee plantation, which are carefully assisted by him, his son and the quality control team. The producer is associated with cooperatives which, in many ways provide information on the coffee market, quality, and courses. For the past two years, the farmer has concentrated countless efforts on the improvement of the production processes and management. Danilo has always shown concern for the environment and has always taken care of nature, today he adds more than 186 hectares of the nature reserve. At the present, plans are been executed in order to certify the properties, to learn more on how to preserve the environment and to produce a 100% sustainable coffee.”
Excellent always so helpful nothing is too much trouble
This is our 2nd purchase of coffee from Redber and the quality and service has been excellent both times. This coffee is as described in their website and our current favorite. In addition we have bought a taster pack and are working our way around the world in coffee. So the African Pack has just been finished and again each of the coffee matched the tasting notes our favourite of these was Natural Ethiopian Sudamo although we enjoyed all of them. We have just received the Americas Pack this morning so really looking forward to trying these. It's a great way to try new coffee and we would encourage you to buy a pack when you next order you regular coffee.
This is a lovely smooth coffee with subtle hints of a banana, pineapple and toffee aftertaste just as per Redbers description (as always). Weirdly, even though its nice and I like it, because its winter it doesn't really feel appropriate? Asides its a great crowd-pleaser and it has character with or without milk. Next order is for a bag of Java Bayukidul for sure..
Very good coffee as usual. This bean was a slight departure from my normal order and was surprisingly different. Very nice.
Won’t buy again !
